The much anticipated foldable phones will soon be a reality. After the launch of the first foldable phone, Royole FlexPai, in October, the world knew that the revolution in the foldable screen is imminent and with the revelation of Samsung’s foldable smartphone, the competition is all time high.

In its annual developer conference, the South Korean multinational conglomerate revealed its upcoming foldable phone, Galaxy F (earlier speculated as Samsung Galaxy X) with a flexible display. The phone was unveiled by Samsung senior vice president, Justin Denison. The technology behind the new display is termed as “Infinity Flex Display.”

The foldable phone can be turned into a tablet after it’s unfolded and without that, it works like a regular handset. The company claims that the display can be opened and closed over and over without any degradation.

Denison said,

"The Infinity Flex Display represents an entirely new mobile platform. We've been living in a world where the size of your screen can only be as large as the device itself. We've added a new dimension to help you browse, watch and multitask like never before."

Though the device showcased in the event isn’t the final offering from Samsung; the smartphone giant is expected to bring some changes to make the mobile phone slimmer and premium.

What’s Android Take on Foldable Phone?

Yes, Android is in with the foldable type phones. After the speech of  Justin Denison, it was Glen Murphy, Google’s head of Android UX, who announced the Android support to the foldable display technology.

Samsung's Foldable Phone Specification

The cover display of the new device measures at 4.58 inches and has a 21:9 aspect ratio. With a resolution of 840x1960, the foldable phone is complimented with a screen density of 420 dpi.

While the foldable screen is packed with 7.3 inches display and has a 4.2:3 aspect ratio. Its resolution is higher than the cover display and sits at 1536x2152, coupled with a screen density of 420 dpi.

Jisun Park, engineering director and head of the system software group for Samsung's mobile business, said that when the phone is unfolded, the cover display will turn off automatically.

"Compared to the Main Display, the experience is more ... optimized for focused and handy and quick access and interaction, to leverage the small screen."

After unveiling the device in the event, Samsung put some more light on its specifications during the afternoon panel with developers. Talking about the battery, the foldable phone’s will sustain a full day, which is similar to current Galaxy smartphones.

One thing that puts the ball in Samsung’s favor is that even after putting up two displays and foldable screen, there is no drop in the overall battery’s performance.
